### A number theory Problem

How many numbers less than or equal to thousand can be expressed as a sum of two or more consecutive numbers?

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Every integer can be expressed as the sum of two or more consecutive integers.

And so on.
